I've been able to track 1st class intl. to the destinations door by plugging the tracking number into the destinations postal service.
Also, France. That two week suggestion sounds about right. I don't think mail is a priority over there. :D

I've used USPS registered mail which allows for tracking in some countries. I've used it for France and England. It is super irritating since you have to use different tape.

"eBay announced today that it will stop working with PayPal as its back-end payments service in 2020, and will start to move a small percentage of its payments volume to a new partner later this year.

In PayPal’s place, eBay has signed a long-term deal with Adyen, an Amsterdam-based payments company that was founded in 2006 and has counted global companies like Uber, Netflix and Spotify among its customer base."

Not sure what to think about that... but I’m sure it’ll screw us over somehow! :lol:

Yes. I once had a USPS person not like the seams in the tube roll so I had to tape the whole damn tube. i used their tape but it took 10 minutes. If memory serves, I couldn't get much by way of insurance via that registered mail.

Folks stated Spain is safe to ship

NOT finding that to be the case- recommend folks avoid, appears they ripped off a package in customs
